“Special in the best sense”
Reviewed 20 August 2012

This small luxury hotel is just blocks off Michigan Avenue and is intimate and quiet.
The staff is friendly and professional.
The rooms are comfy and have a large sitting area and a Krueg coffee maker. Bathrooms are well equipped and Molton Brown toiletries are provided.
But imagine turn down service with clean towels provided each evening! Wonder of wonderful special service for reasonable prices. Luxury and service combined!

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights at the start of our touring holiday in July 2012. This is a first class hotel with larger than average rooms and excellent, helpful staff. The location is ideal for visiting all the sights in Chicago , and the hotel is very clean and the free wifi was a great additional bonus. Would definately stay again. First class.

Room Tip: Whilst our room didn't have a "view" it was such a large size it did not matter.

Incredibly friendly and helpful staff, particularly the front desk and concierge. The room wasn't enormous, but certainly spacious enough for 2 people to stay comfortably. The bathroom, in particular, was fantastic. And HUGE! Separate bath tub and shower, and 2 sinks. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Chicago!

Super friendly staff, great breakfasts, easy with kids, large rooms, hot showers---can't beat the value, but I would stay again at a higher price. Ask for the lobster tacos from Reuben at the restaurant, grab a paper and sit outside at the sidewalk tables, quiet street, but easy to get a cab, central enough to go to Lululemon a block away or Hugo's for dinner. Book it!

Hotel is in a 1920s building. Excellent location close to State and Chicago CTA line. You can get here from OHare pretty easy and cheaply. Hotel has very friendly and helpful staff, they provide a turndown service in the evenings. Free WIFi is avail, no pool or fitness area. The restaurant bar looked nice and affordable but we did not partake. There is a grocery store around the corner, lululemon a block away, the water tower is also very close. Overall for a large city downtown hotel it is quite good. Be nice if they had an ice machine in the hallway or lobby, as you have to call the front desk each time, it takes about 20min and they don't always come when called.

Room Tip: We got our booking thru some city tourism site for cheap.

Our family of four enjoyed our recent 4 night stay at The Talbott Hotel. The location of the hotel is great. Delaware Place is a quiet side street running between the main avenues. You can walk to almost all of the main tourist sites or go for a run along Lake Michigan. The subway, taxi's and bus system can get you anywhere else you need to go. We never had a need for a car. All of the staff is outstanding and friendly! The concierge is great and helped us book several tours and shows. From the doormen to the maid service, everyone had a smile and was always helpful. There is a stylish restaurant and sidewalk cafe adjoining the hotel that provides an attractive place to hangout if you get tired of spending time in your room or just want to have breakfast or a cocktail. Should we have the good fortune to return to Chicago, we will stay at The Talbott again!

Traditionally beautiful, upscale tourist location. Highly professional staff, always warm and lovely. Enormous suite, beautiful huge double bathroom, wet bar, living room. Top quality linens, soaps, etc. Very very comfortable, and luxurious in a very traditional way.

Room Tip: Ask for a suite, it is a great value, and it's better than all of the modern, cold, sterile opti...
